The Duquesne athletic department was planning on hosting big crowds for the opening of the UPMC Cooper Fieldhouse but COVID-19 has ruined those plans for at least a season.
While the exact location of all of Duquesne 2020-21 home games are still up in the air due to the delay in the completion of their new building, the university still wants to have their fans their in some form.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Today the university announced that a limited edition of Duquesne Dukes Fan cutouts are now available for purchase for the 2020-21 basketball season. It’s as simple as submitting a photo of yourself or a family member.
Starting today, fan cutouts will be on sale through November 12 for $55 per cutout and all proceeds will go to support the Duquesne Athletic Fund, which supports the competitive and academic experiences for the Duquesne men and women’s student-athletes.
Duquesne wants you to know a few important details:
*Due to anticipated high demand, these will be filled on first come first serve basis.
